Real Life, a TV series and popular video game franchise, is one of the oldest games/TV shows out there. Created by GodCo already it has clocked up over 15 million seasons, making it the longest production show ever.

This review specifically deals with the spin-off Real Life: The Video Game.

Firstly, the game has no monthly fee. That's right. NO MONTHLY FEE. The catch is that you have to spend a lot (LOTS) of in-game money to progress, but its in-game money so it's okay.

Secondly, the graphics are amazing. The game is 3D-enabled, although for some users, the graphics card may not be compatible, and colours are deep and rich. The sound is amazing too, it's so immersive. Again, depends on your sound card.

The game is totally yours. I was expecting missions to do (although other players can set you tasks to do, such as homework, cleaning, working), but you can take the game at your own lesuire. Plus, in order to gain money, you can choose a work-class. There's Doctor, Lawyer, Builder... there's even one dedicated to taking screenshots of the game.

The game has so many variables, no two occurrences are alike, which makes for interesting gameplay.

Of course, for all the coolness, there are some bugs.

For example, the Death bug. The death bug only gives you one life, but luckily, in certain places you can go find a healthpack at certain stations called hospitals. The lower your health bar, the longer you stay.

There's also the disparity bug, which causes some players to start out better than others. However, an in-game forum made of the Politics class players called the United Nationa are trying to patch this bug over.

If you do get stuck with the game, there is a site http://www.wikipedia.org which is a near-walkthrough to the game. However, the walkthough isn't quite complete.

There are also some story arcs that have been over used.

The War on Terror arc has got many players fed up, especially since some players deleted their account PLUS deleting others accounts as well.

Right now this player is playing the side-mission called: The Spoof Writer, where I must write an article and post it.

Remember, to have some good fun playing Real Life.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
